Do you grow flowers? I have some that I just started to grow this year. They are gardenia and camelias. I also grew some vinca and marigolds. They're starting to die off tho after all the storms we've had. I used to have quite a few roses but I had a lot of trouble with black spot. I do have a few roses this year that are doing good tho. So, what kind of flowers do you grow?

Yes i do grow flowers in my garden.I have a huge garden.A very big lawn with lots of flower beds.now its raining we into a late monsoon.The whole place is drenched and waterlogged.The only things that are adding beauty to my garden now are the camelias.I have about eight bushes of them white, light pink, dark pink another white with pink stripes its gorgeous.I have pruned all the other plants.The seedlings I put out have all been washed away in the rain.The poinsettias and the justicias are all adding a lot of color.Just waiting for the rain to be over to get the garden back to shape.I have a hot house so i put away a lot of anthuriums and tuberous begonias.These pots are on the verandah where the rain does not affect it.I have roses too but nothing blooming in this rain.

Well,I am not much into gardening since I stay at a rent house right now and my owner doesn't allow me to put lots of flowers in my terrace,but yes, I do have some beautiful roses red and pink blooming on the pot.I can only grow them on pots but yes, at home we have a big compound and a big garden,my dad's garden is what we used to call teasing him.There we have different colours of roses.Marigold dwarfs,gladiola,anthurium etc.I don't know all the names.But,I must say it looks so beautiful.

I remember my Mom used to have a big flower garden. She had some beautiful ones. My flowers never look as good as hers did.

I usually grow alot of "wild flowers" so I have several varieties..... purple cone flower, black eyed susan, batchelor button, bee balm, cosmos, bleeding heart, blazing stars, morning glories, and butterfly bush are all that I can think of at the minute. I also am trying to grow a few types of roses... Queen Elizabeth, Don Juan, and New Dawn. Only problem I don't have as much money to work with them as I'd like or free time as kids can certainly distract and take away from your free time alot.
